Niagara Falls in Spring

The season has officially changed, but the weather refuses to cooperate. The day started out pleasantly in the honeymoon capital of the world, then the snow started and when a new day dawned, about an inch of snow had fallen on the ground. This is the view from the 38th floor of the Hilton Niagara Falls.
And now everything is white

Hilton upgraded us to a two bedroom deluxe suite with a fantastic whirlpool bath and a premium view of both falls. I bought some bubble bath in the gift shop and enjoyed a soak in the large, jet filled bathtub. We had bought the package which included a $50 coupon, a meal voucher for one of the hotel's restaurants and a free breakfast buffet. When we checked in they had a spin the wheel prize draw and we won free self-check parking. The hotel is an easy walk to the falls, not too far from Clifton Hill and is directly connected to the Casino by a glass enclosed, elevated walkway. Totally recommend the hotel, but if you get a whirlpool bath remember not add too much bubbles to your bath!

I did find a little bit of spring in the Floral Showhouse with several greenhouses chock full of flowers.
